February’s very active winter pattern of cold and snow continues this weekend through at least early next week, as O`Hare is already only 3″ shy of its annual snowfall total with well over a month of Winter remaining in a season that began quietly.
Yet another long-duration snowfall event is forecast for Friday evening, potentially lasting a full 24 hours before winding down Saturday evening.
Snowfall will begin earliest furthest south: around 7-9 pm south of the I-88 corridor; 9-11 pm northwards to the O`Hare area; and around Midnight near the Illinois/Wisconsin border. The peak time for the heaviest snowfall rates is expected to be after Midnight and before Noon Saturday, though lighter snow showers are expected to continue through 7 pm Saturday.
Despite the expected duration of this event, totals will be relatively low: a widespread 1-3″ is expected for most of the region. Areas south of I-80 and in the Northwest Indiana lake-effect snowbelt, especially Porter County, may receive slightly higher totals of 4-5″. There is also the potential for lake-effect snow persisting through Sunday morning.
Along with tonight’s snow is another stretch of subzero low temperatures for the next several days, as well as the potential for another round of snow Monday to target the southern half of the region, with 1-2″ forecast at this time.
